There is both indoor and outdoor dining space, the indoor is small but comfortable. The wrap round windows give it a feeling of space and connection with the outside world. It’s almost hard to believe you’re in the heart of the city.
We started our meal with coffee, it had a lovely creaminess with sweet honey notes to finish.
Our first dish was the El Gringo. A Mexican inspired breakfast with chorizo and sweet corn chimichanga’s, refried beans, queso and fried eggs. The chimichanga was an absolute winner and perfectly fried, we would have liked more bulk to the dish though, more refried beans to act as a carrier. If you’re going to go for a Mexican breakfast, instead of all the heuvos rancheros going round, why not try this?
We’re always in the mood for a eggs benedict, so our next choice was the mustard eggs benny with a pressed ham hock. We loved the addition of the mustard to the hollamdaise and the great flavour of the ham hock but we’re not sure if the press adding anything to the dish. The eggs were well poached and the hollandaise was delicious, the dish was an interesting take on a classic. Like the dish before it, we did find it was a little expensive option for the serving size.
Trunk Diner is in the middle of the city but it really doesn’t feel like it. It’s worth a visit for interesting and tasty meals all day.
